Solaris Common Desktop Environment: User's Guide

To Save Sample Information to a Log File

  1. Choose Setup from the Options menu.

    Performance Meter displays the Setup dialog box.

  2. Select the Log Samples In checkbox.

  3. Type the name of your log file in the Log Samples In text box.

    Use a descriptive name such as the default samples, or if you are monitoring multiple hosts from your workstation: samples_hostname.

    The default location is your home folder, such as /home/fredj/samples.

  4. Click Apply to make your changes take effect.

    Performance Meter creates the specified log file (a text file) if it doesn't exist. Performance Meter continues to append sample details for each sample until you exit Performance Meter. The next time you run Performance Meter, the Log Samples In checkbox will be unselected.
